Will custom cotton T-shirts shrink?
When customizing cotton T-shirts , cotton fibers are generally used, and cotton fibers have a strong water absorption. When they absorb water, they will swell the cotton fibers, which will cause the cotton yarn to shrink and deform, so the cotton T-shirt will shrink The shrinkage rate is about 2% to 5%. During the customization process, we consider the characteristics of the cotton material, and the final cotton T-shirt will not affect the normal wearing. Of course, there are some products that are specially processed according to production requirements. This type of cotton T-shirt has been treated with alkaline when it is not woven into a cloth. Instructions for normal washing will not cause problems.
